Patriots in Christ

Patriots in Christ an appellation given to certain- Wurtemberg Separatists, originated by the abbe Gregoire, who appeared in 1801, during the rising popularity of Bonaparte, and maintained that he was the second and true Messiah, who was to destroy the spiritual Babylon and give freedom to the nations. They formed themselves into an order of knighthood, called the Knights of Napoleon, but as the ambitious personage on whom their expectations rested made no pretensions to the dignity which they had marked out for him, they met with no encouragement, and speedily fell into oblivion.
